N.S. Storrs of Emporia wrote to Wood concerning the ill will that had developed toward Wood in Butler County as a result of the recent (October 12) Republican nominating convention and the subsequent election of P.G.D. Morton to the territorial legislature. Storrs agreed with his friends from Butler County that it was a "packed" convention and Butler was not given sufficient representation; the county just wanted "her proper rights and not have a man forced upon her by Skullduggery and damd rascality." Wood was advised to convince people in Butler County that "you did not pledged yourself to Morton."
